Atlantic Economic Journal

Relevant Areas:

AEJ is indexed in: SCOPUS, EconLit, Google Scholar, EBSCO, CSA, ProQuest, Academic OneFile, AGRICOLA, Business Source, Corporate ResourceNet, ECONIS, Expanded Academic, Highbeam, International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS), OCLC, Research Papers in Economics (RePEc), SCImago, Summon by Serial Solutions

Quick Links 
Greetings!
The International Atlantic Economic Society invites you to submit original research manuscripts to the Atlantic Economic Journal, a peer reviewed professional journal established in 1973.
The AEJ has a tradition of excellence in publishing research from the world’s most respected economists,  such as Nobel laureates as well as less well known researchers, that is over four decades long.

About the Journal

The AEJ emphasizes freedom of opportunity to research and discuss global economic issues that impact populations worldwide. Policy-oriented, theoretical, and empirical research papers in all economic and financial areas are welcome, without regard to methodological preference, school of thought, or political point of view.

 

Expedited Review

The Atlantic Economic Journal is proud to announce its  expedited review (ER) program, which grants your manuscript special attention and guarantees a quick response.  If you choose this option, you will no longer spend 6-12 months waiting for a decision on your submission.

Notice of the first level of review is made within 30 days of submission.  The paper is then rushed to the second level of review, with a final decision made within the next 60 days.

The deadline for expeditious review submission is January 31, 2014.

Benefits of Publishing in the AEJ

  • Full double-blind peer review: All manuscripts submitted to our journals undergo anonymous peer review by hand-selected members of our board of editors and ad-hoc reviewers. Comments are constructively offered to help authors refine and improve their research.
  • Anthologies: As well as full manuscripts, authors have the opportunity to publish brief notes that
    may not be worthy of a formal paper but are important enough to warrant dissemination to colleagues.
  • Fast Review Process: Every effort is made to ensure rapid turn around of high quality reviews. Full manuscripts are typically reviewed in three to four months while research notes are usually reviewed in one.
  • Expedited Review Process: Authors have the option of selecting an expedited review process, which insures that notice of the first level of review is made within 30 days of submission.  The paper is then rushed to the second level of review, with a final decision made within the next 60 days.
  • Low prices and member discounts: Submission and publication fees are deeply discounted for members of the IAES. Click here  for more information.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or my editorial assistant Grace Cummings at journals(at)iaes.org. Be sure to visit our more policy oriented journal, the International Advances in Economic Research, as well!
Sincerely,
Katherine S. Virgo, Ph.D.

ESA-announce ACM Web Science Conference (WebSci14), June 23-26, 2014

Posted on 2013/11/08. Filed under: 綜合 |

1st CALL FOR PAPERS

ACM Web Science Conference (WebSci14), June 23-26, 2014

Bloomington, Indiana, USA

websci14.org * @WebSciConf * #WebSci14

Deadline for papers: Feb. 23rd 2014

Web Science is the emergent science of the people, organizations,
applications, and of policies that shape and are shaped by the Web, the
largest informational artifact constructed by humans in history. Web
Science embraces the study of the Web as a vast universal information
network of people and communities. As such, Web Science includes the
study of social networks whose work, expression, and play take place on
the Web. The social sciences and computational sciences meet in Web
Science and complement one another: Studying human behavior and social
interaction contributes to our understanding of the Web, while Web data
is transforming how social science is conducted. The Web presents us
with a great opportunity as well as an obligation: If we are to ensure
the Web benefits humanity we must do our best to understand it.

Call for Papers

The Web Science conference is inherently interdisciplinary, as it
attempts to integrate computer and information sciences, communication,
linguistics, sociology, psychology, economics, law, political science,
philosophy, digital humanities, and other disciplines in pursuit of an
understanding of the Web. This conference is unique in the manner in
which it brings these disciplines together in creative and critical
dialogue, and we invite papers from all the above disciplines, and in
particular those that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Following the success of WebSci’09 in Athens, WebSci’10 in Raleigh,
WebSci’11 in Koblenz, WebSci 12 in Evanston, and WebSci13 in Paris,
for the 2014 conference we are seeking papers and posters that describe
original research, analysis, and practice in the field of Web Science,
as well as work that discusses novel and thought-provoking ideas and
works-in-progress.

Possible topics for submissions include, but are not limited to, the
following:

* Analysis of human behavior using social media, mobile devices, and
online communities

* Methodological challenges of analyzing Web-based large-scale social
interaction

* Data-mining and network analysis of the Web and human communities on
the Web

* Detailed studies of micro-level processes and interactions on the Web

* Collective intelligence, collaborative production, and social
computing

* Theories and methods for computational social science on the Web

* Studies of public health and health-related behavior on the Web

* The architecture and philosophy of the Web

* The intersection of design and human interaction on the Web

* Economics and social innovation on the Web

* Governance, democracy, intellectual property, and the commons

* Personal data, trust, and privacy

* Web and social media research ethics

* Studies of Linked Data, the Cloud, and digital eco-systems

* Big data and the study of the Web

* Web access, literacy, and development

* Knowledge, education, and scholarship on and through the Web

* People-driven Web technologies, including crowd-sourcing, open data,
and new interfaces

* Digital humanities

* Arts & culture on the Web or engaging audiences using Web resources

* Web archiving techniques and scholarly uses of Web archives

* New research questions and thought-provoking ideas

Submission

Web Science is necessarily a very selective single track conference with
a rigorous review process. To accommodate the distinct traditions of its
many disciplines, we provide three different submission formats: full
papers, short papers, and posters. For all types of submissions,
inclusion in the ACM DL proceedings will be by default, but not
mandatory (opt-out via EasyChair). All accepted research papers (full
and short papers) will be presented during the single-track conference.
All accepted posters will be given a spot in the single-track lightning
talk session, and room to present their papers during a dedicated poster
session.

Full research papers (5 to 10 pages, ACM double column, 20 mins
presentation including Q&A)

Full research papers should present new results and original work that
has not been previously published. Research papers should present
substantial theoretical, empirical, methodological, or policy-oriented
contributions to research and/or practice.

Short research papers (up to 5 pages, ACM double column, 15 mins
presentation including Q&A)

Short research papers should present new results and original work that
has not been previously published. Research papers can present
preliminary theoretical, empirical, methodological, or policy-oriented
contributions to research and/or practice.

Full and short paper submissions should be formatted according to the
official ACM SIG proceedings template (WebSci archive format at
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates).

Posters (up to 6 pages, ACM abstract template, lightning talk + poster
presentation)

Extended abstracts for posters, which should be in English, can be up to
6 pages, and should be formatted according to the official ACM SIG
abstract template (extended abstract format at
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pl130rtd134fxu6/hiyzXgWwTs).

Other creative submission formats (flexible formats)

Other types of creative submissions are also encouraged, and the exact
format and style of presentation are open. Examples might include
artistic performances or installations, interactive exhibits,
demonstrations, or other creative formats. For these submissions, the
proposers should make clear both what they propose to do, and any
special requirements they would need to successfully do it (in terms of
space, time, technology, etc.)

Instructions for all types of submissions will be posted on the
WebSci14 conference website soon.

Review

The Web Science program committee consists of a program committee that
covers all relevant areas of Web Science. Each submission will be
refereed by three PC members and one short meta review written by a
Co-PC chair,to cover both the research background of each submission as
well as the necessary interdisciplinary aspects.

(Optional) Archival Proceedings in the ACM Digital Library

All accepted papers and posters will by default appear in the Web
Science 2014 Conference Proceedings and can also be made available
through the ACM Digital Library, in the same length and format of the

ESA-announce FW: Special Issue – Call for Papers update

Posted on 2013/11/08. Filed under: 綜合 |

Call for Papers Special Issue on “Voluntary Market Payments”

Journal of Socio-Economics

Guest Editor: Martin Natter

The Journal of Socio-Economics is inviting submissions for a special issue on Voluntary Market Payments. Voluntary market payments, such as tipping, have a long tradition and sometimes reflect a significant part of the overall payment for a service. More recently voluntary payments have also been adopted or tested at an increasing rate by diverse services such as restaurants, sports events, car repair, hotels, cinema tickets, music downloads or zoos as temporary or even as permanent pricing mechanism for the full service or part of it. Under the name “Pay-what-you-want” (PWYW) or “Pay-as-you-wish” some of these services have gained a significant number of new customers and received customers’ attention while others failed. Implementations vary in their degree of interaction between seller and buyer, the usage of reference prices, combinations with social purposes, sales channels and the value of offered products or services. The increasing number of implementations enables field studies that can help to address interesting research questions.

The special issue on voluntary payments focuses on new thinking and research that helps to better understand the characteristics of and differences between different forms of voluntary payments and their implications for service implementations and the allocation of marketing investments.

The special issue encourages submissions focusing on key research questions that include, but are not limited to:

• How does PWYW pricing influence tipping behavior when both exist (e.g., in restaurants)?

• What is the influence of the social context on voluntary payments?

• What are the roles of provider’s perceived costs and effort for tipping and voluntary payments under price mechanisms such as PWYW?

• Do customers adapt their voluntary payments to their consumption?

• How can firms incorporate voluntary payments in their sales process?

• PWYW pricing has only been studied in B2C settings. Are there feasible implementations in a B2B setting?

• What is the role of provider’s brand under PWYW pricing?

• What is the role of convenience in voluntary payment schemes and what is an appropriate model to deal with that?

The extended deadline for initial submission to this special issue is December 16st, 2013. Papers can be submitted earlier than the deadline and in that case they will start to be handled immediately. Those papers that are invited to revise and resubmit will get three months to do so. The Guest Editor’s policy in most cases is to make a final decision on the second round. When submitting a paper, authors should use the EES system (http://ees.elsevier.com/jse/default.asp) and choose the appropriate article category (authors select SI: Voluntary Market Payments) to mark that the paper should be considered for this special issue. Only original papers not currently under review or published in other journals may be submitted.

For questions, please contact Martin Natter (natter).

With thanks,

Guest Editor Martin Natter

ESA-announce Job opening at the University of California, Davis

Posted on 2013/11/08. Filed under: 綜合 |

The University of California, Davis, Department of Economics, is searching for a tenure track assistant professor in microeconomic theory including experimental economics and behavioral economics. The official job posting can be found under

http://www.aeaweb.org/joe/listing.php?JOE_ID=201311_399109

I encourage all qualified candidates to apply. For candidates outside the US who hesitate about living in the US, let me mention that Davis is not the usual collection of strip malls and highways. It is more like a garden town with coffee shops, restaurants, a big concert hall, and bike paths everywhere. While we are not directly located by the sea, we remain hopeful that global warming will eventually yield us direct beach access. We are between San Francisco and South Lake Tahoe (skiing, climbing, hiking).

For any questions, let me know.

Regards,
Burkhard C. Schipper
